Culpepper didn't give credit to Gerard
Most of Culpepper's material came from a much earlier herbal by Gerard. It is a good book, but not the best on early medicine.

I have this book
I have had this book for over 35 years and was wondering about its date. Printed in 1880 I see from what is said in this Archive. It is a wonderful book with many colorful drawings. I downloaded it and compared it to my copy. However, my copy starts off with drawings of 7 herbs. Other than that, it is a great book on the herbs of Culpeper's day, originally printed in 1652.
